Welcome to!009:01, 30 June 2010


Hi and welcome! I noticed you used Special:FirstSteps and you are not the first one to add many individual babel templates. I'd like to know why you did that? Is the help unclear? I don't understand it since in the help there is an example how to add many languages:

If you are a native speaker of a language, leave the skill level out, and only use the language code.
Example: if you speak Tamil natively, English well, and little Swahili, you would write:

Is there a way we can make it clearer? Just to be clear: you did nothing wrong, but I'd like to know how to help people do it correctly in the future. Thanks.

Hello! I did that, because i don't used "help"!!! And especially because it's the way it works at wikipedia personal users room. You know, like Template:User uk, Template:User pl-4. I don't know how to make it clearer for the future, maybe short explanation during the registration (just like that one in help: if you speak Tamil natively, English well, and little Swahili, you would write:

Babel user information
ta-N இந்தப் பயனர் தமிழில் தாய்மொழி அறிவைக் கொண்டவர்.
en-3 This user has advanced knowledge of English.
sw-1 Mtumiaji huyu ni mwongeaji wa Kiswahili cha kiwango cha Msingi.
Users by language

) Thank You for explanation!
